Three Kamloops wineries won big at the annual All Canadian Wine Championships.
Trish Morelli of Kamloops Wineries Association says in this competition, there were 1,391 wines entered, with Harper’s Trail, Privato, and Monte Creek Ranch wineries all coming home with medals.
“I mean, ten medals is just a huge showing at a national wine championship. Probably the big news of the day is that we won 5 double golds, best in category, out of those ten awards. So that’s pretty astounding for one region to win that many awards.”
Morelli says, the victors were chosen in a double blind taste test, and all ten of the winning wines can be found in Kamloops at the wineries.
